Staff Pick by comrade:

Come at me bro! Just kidding, but now that yr looking: This is a great collection of articles on masculinity. It offers a varied analysis of what it means to be socialized with Western expectations of masculinity. I think this area of thought/study is incredibly important for anyone trying to understand the broad/sweeping implications of misogyny, patriarchy, and the necessity for feminism and/or analysis beyond the gender binary. In short: cool story bro.
